Mogul Mowgli

Directed by Bassam Tariq

On the brink of his first international tour, Zed, a British Pakistani rapper, decides to fly home to the UK to visit the family he has not seen in two years. Struck down by an autoimmune disease, his condition worsens, threatening his international breakthrough.

Giving centre stage to incendiary rap lyrics and a striking central performance by actor Riz Ahmed, a rapper himself, Tariq’s debut feature film is a disquieting and electrifying exploration of male malady, family frictions, social mobility and transnational citizenship.

Please be aware this film contains one scene with some flashing images which may be difficult for some (photosensitive) viewers.
